Made in 1982 and released in 1983, this film is quite something to see if you like opera, war and disaster and of course, the odd ship thrown in.

In July 1914, on the eve of World War I, the luxurious Italian liner Gloria N sets sail carrying the friends and colleagues of an Italian opera diva whose ashes they are going to scatter off the island where she was born. On the way they rescue a group of Serbian refugees fleeing Austro-Hungarian persecution in their homeland. The Austrian warship nearby demand the Gloria N captain give them up.....

A very clever, strange, meaningful film, in black and white and colour and in Italian, German and Serbo-Croat but starring a group of old 1970's British actors and actresses!

Cheers,
